Lordship of Farncombe
« on: Tuesday 10 November 20 11:05 GMT (UK) »
I have the transcript of a will of an ancestor dated 1558. It says "and my indenture held of the lordship of Farncombe". Does anyone know what that means? Was he "Lord of the Manor" or did he rent property from the "lordship of Farncombe". Thanks.

Thank you. His name wasn't Farncombe though. The Farncombe mentioned in the will is in Surrey near where my ancestor lived.

Thank you, that is very interesting. Sadly my ancestor not named as a holder of the manor. So I don't know what the indenture refers to.

No, he was William Bromham. His will dated 1558 - living in Godalming, Surrey. He was a Mercer. I don't know where he was born.
